Hello Postcrosser, welcome!
My name is Els, I am 32 years and live with my husband Robin and our doughter Marleen in Driebergen, near Utrecht, in The Netherlands. Marleen is 6 months old.
I'm working as a teacher on a primary school, in year/grade 7.
I like playing the saxofone and clarinet, reading, crochet, sewing clothes for Marleen, badminton, collecting stamps, to cook and bake and trying new recipies and writing letters to my penpals.
All kind of postcards are welcome, extra welcome are cards with:
- musical instruments, like saxophone, flute or other
- Bert and Ernie, Sesamestreet (Elmo, Big Bird and other)
- city names (like the yellow ones in my whishlist)
- The English Queen and/or her husband prince Phillip.
- the name of the town Holland in the USA (Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Texas) or Canada.
- a card signed at a Postcrossing meet-up
- Christmas and New Year cards (also when it's not the season)
These are wishes, I will be happy with any card, also with a multi-view from the place you live. I hope it's just helping you to choose a card you want to sent to me. Or just send me a card you like. That's the Postcrossing idea.
City names I allready have: Baden-Baden, Bergisches Land, Berlin, Bielefeld, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Fohr, Freiburg, Hamburg, Ibbenbüren, Kühlungsborn, Koln, Mosel, München, Naumburg, Saarbrücken, Schwarzwald, Stuttgart, Titisee, Trier, Wolfsburg, Wuppertal.
I also collect used stamps, especially the Dutch stamps and Christmas & New Year stamps. When you want to sent me some stamps, feel free to send the card in an envelope and ad some used stamps. Or send the card in an envelope so I can use the stamps. I do not take stamps from the cards, only from envelopes.
If you don't know what to write about you could tell someting about the postcard, your hometown, your favorite song or movie. I like to read and learn about other people.
You can write in German to me, if you like that.
I'm always open for new penpals.
Many greetings and enjoy the Postcrossing!
Els or 'Kokosnoot' (that means 'coconut')
